2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir •Bacigalupi Vineyard and El Diablo Vineyard
California: Sonoma County: Russian River Valley
Today’s Yeilding Wine 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a textbook Russian River Valley Pinot Noir from two of the most sought-after vineyard sources in the Russian River Valley. Fruit from the Baccigalupi and El Diablo vineyards produce some of the finest and most prized in the Russian River Valley.
This wine has a lovely texture on the palate, with fruits that lead to an extended and very flavor-filled finish. Flavors of kola, cocoa and earth juxtapose the rich, dark fruits to give the wine a dark but balanced appeal.
The El Diablo fruit contributes to the rich, dark color of the wine while the Baccigalupi fruit gives the wine a brightness that makes it an excellent food companion.
Enjoy this very highly recommended Pinot with fowl or pork dishes - or all on its own.
A rustic, scarlet red at the very edge of the glass encircles a deep, slightly opaque ruby at the heart of the glass.
Elegantly subdued on the nose, with fresh cherry and strawberry balanced against cherry cola, baker’s chocolate, herbal black tea, and orange zest.
An expressive, well balanced, and absolutely fantastic on the palate, this wine is everything you’d want in a Russian River Valley Pinot. Leading with plenty of candied cherry and sweet plum, the wine is balanced out by more complex flavors of dark chocolate, unsweetened cola, orange oil, and a lovely minerality.
A lovely texture, without being overwhelming, the boldness of the fruit flavors are balanced by a wonderful acidity at the finish, highlighted by the subtle minerality that sings through to the very end.
A roast pork loin, rubbed with fresh garlic and rosemary, served with the pan juices drizzled on top.
